And that is the way she took care of

And there were the neighbors' children,

A Mountain of Basalt.
There is a mountain of dark brown
basalt on tho Columbia river nearly 2,000
feet in height and stretching along the
stream for six or eight miles. When the
white settlers first came Into the country,
the Indians told them this mountain was
traveling; that somo , day it would move
across the Columbia1 and form a lake
which would reach from the cascades to
The Dalles. What the Indians said has
lirain found true in some respects. The
mountain is In motion. Its movement Is
forward and downward. The railroad
builders who constructed their line along
tho base found the tracks continually
forced out of place. In some places tho
movement has amounted to eight and ton
feet in a few years. Geologists attribute
the phenomenon to the fact that the moun
tain rests on asubstratuui of conglomerate
or of soft sandstone, which Is steadily be
ing washed away by the current of tho big
river. New York Tribune.
